    question about power wire

    what would happen if either the power wire fell off from the battery or it broke off from the fuse holder and the wire touched the car? would it **** up the car or the amp? not saying thatll happen to me but just wondering

    Tie Strap or tape the wire down where it can't move out of the fuse holder... If it comes off the battery then nothing to worry about really.. no power its a dead wire..

    Battery is where the power is... if it come loose from the batter.. or holder the amp side will be dead wire... just do like i said.. tie straps.. tape etc.. as close to the holder and battery... if you are worried about it that much glue some rubber to the metal around the holder and battery man...

    Re: question about power wire

    the only thing you have to worry about is the wire from the battery going into the fuse holder coming out, which is the reason for fusing as close to the battery as possible, usually less than a foot. If the wire comes out of the fuse holder between the fuse and amp, it is dead anyways.
